Hi Dmitriy,

actually I didn't understand exactly what the problem is, so I'm 
guessing that you got a conversion problem. Do you have SQL_ASCII as 
database encoding? If yes, this is a problem, because Russian characters 
are not ascii.
There are two options:

1) (the better option)
use UNICODE or the Russian encoding in the database.

2) Use a newer pgAdmin3 version, we have a new workaround for SQL_ASCII 
databases with wrong characters.
